REVIEWS OF La Carreta Mexican Restaurant & Bar IN Indiana

Erica Kaufman West

It started out great, the nachos were amazing. The fish tacos on corn tortillas were awful. I have never had bad fish tacos until now. The fried ice cream was just ok. My husband said it tasted like the rolled the ice cream in frosted flakes. There was no cinnamon involved, and they doused it in whip cream, strawberry sauce and chocolate sauce. Then, you pay at the front, which is fine. Except that that counter is also where you wait to be seated and where you put in and pick up a take-out order. There was a small amount of chaos for 7 minutes until things were sorted out. My husband had been there before and loved the chimichangas, but it's going to take some convincing to get me to go back.

denise dunlap

Ambience was relaxing, service was excellent. Got the ranchero fajitas for two (24.99) which come with shrimp, chicken, pork, and chorizo. We each had a serving of rice and beans, guac, salad for toppings, three tortillas each and sour cream. We were stuffed and still had enough for like six more tacos! No joke! Will come again!

Chris Washington

This was my second time coming here and it was just as good as the first. You have to try the Texas Nachos. They has steak, chicken and shrimp meats on it and the cheese is so good. They are not skimpy with the portions either. The waiter was eight on time with the refills and clearing dishes. Nothing bad to say about this place. The alcoholic beverages are huge and you get your money's worth. We always leave with leftovers. Better than any Mexican restaurant that I have ever had.

Kimberly Buckles

Excellent service and great margaritas.

Monique Davis

The place was a beautifully decorated with Christmas decor. The food was ok Inordered the chicken quesadillas they were ok. My girlfriend ordered steak and didn't like it. They took out back and made it just how she wanted. The service was A1. place us kind of like a Pepe's but nicer. I will be back.


Tortilla chips were thin and bright yellow. I can buy more authentic chips at the grocery store. The queso was runny and unappetizing. Won't return.

Jeannine lamb.hugi

Best queso in Indiana! Staff is friendly and efficient. I recommend the carnitas.

Bobby Wright

The rice was as cold as my beer! The server was arrogant and disconnected! Overrated!

Delores Thompson was my first time at LaCarretta and I was just overwhelmed with the food and drinks. My daughter had been there a few times and she was telling our family how delicious the food was. I had been to several Mexican restaurants around the area and I was disappointed with the food and drinks. But after being here has changed my whole mindset, I will be recommending La Carreta to all my family and friends. And this is my favorite place to go. And last but definitely not least the Waiter we had was so friendly and polite. I highly recommend this restaurant for great service and quality food and drinks.

J Taylor

Overall very good and tasty so the waiter did disappear and it was hard to find him when we were ready to order and at the end to get a take-home box. Otherwise good

Ruth Samayoa

Food is ok . I like their menu is very extend.

Jazmani Busby

60 ounce margaritas and strong too! The food was really delicious and I will be back for more. Highly recommend the bar seating if only a small group. The wait staff wasn't the most attentive but everything was provided in a timely manner. Enjoyed myself and will return.

Trieste Warren

Good experience overall. Nicely decorated. House salsa was very good. I had the shrimp and chicken quesadilla and it was very good. Had to ask for more rice since what came on my plate looked like only a spoonful. Margarita was good too

Lina Contreras

I really enjoy going to this place. The food is great. They were also awesome for a large party that was held for my daughter.

robert holubik

Very good foods but little high pricey!

Teena Elliott

Awesome food n great service n very clean

Hector De La Rosa

The drinks and food are great. The shrimp nachos are excellent. The Margaritas are just exquisite where you can taste the liquor/tequila (just the right amount).

Christinia Little-Davis

Meh~Chicken dry, steak horrible, I ordered the Texas salad

Samuel Mendoza

Good food, excellent service, friendly atmosphere


Awesome atmosphere, fantastic margaritas, great food, friendly service. Definitely will frequent this restaurant.


I love, love, love Mexican food!!! Ate here for the first time and the food was amazing... I had the Texas Nacho, which came with fresh tortilla chips, chicken, steak, shrimp(yes you can substitute the meat), guacamole, sour cream, etc... There's enough to either share it with someone or take what toy can't finish home with you...

Matthew Penrod

Really good food and service too!

Bobby Hannah

This is a great place to bring your kids, friends and family here for an experience of delicious Mexican cuisine. It is definitely a good after hours spot to enjoy the atmosphere and they have a variety of food/drink chooses as well.

Matt Miecznikowski

Service was slow and needed to ask for water 3 times. They just had two people working the whole bar area and they were busy. Food was good and place was very clean. I'd give it another try some day.

Katie Jones

I've been going here for 11 years and have spent the past 10 birthdays celebrating here. It is my absolute favorite restaurant! The margaritas are the BEST! The wait staff ROCKS!

scott beilfuss

Nice people, good service, fair prices, nice atmosphere, great food

Tortilla broke easily, margaritas are pre made, not frozen, yet watery. Rice is made with a chile flavor and refried beans tasted funny. Service was good. Carnitas tasted flavorless, in thick pieces, not soft, stringy at best


Food great, Margarita excellent

Youlonda Richards

Dimas Gutierrez

Good food and service.

Todd Borisy

The food was excellent.we split the El Trio Ensalata. It was large enough for two people with plenty of shrimp, chicken, beef, and veggies. The guacamole was delicious and the chips and salsa hit the spot. We also had a wonderful Margarita on the Rocks, but the true highlight of the whole experience was our server. He was spot on and really made for a remarkable experience. My only regret was not getting his name for this post.

Quintyra Puckett

The food was good. But they are much smaller portions than the last visit.

Christina Villanueva

My family and I LOVE la carreta. Seriously, if you’ve never been here, you’ve got to check it out! My husband and I love the food and margaritas. You can never go wrong with this place!

Valencia Shannon

We had our first date here. Five years later, were still coming. Never a disappointed.

Brett Gelman

Awesome food and very energetic and courteous wait staff. They have specials every day for drinks and the restaurant was always clean which is always a good thing. Come out to the South Bend area and I will eat there every day!

victor sanchez

Good food and drinks, a little pricey but well worth it.

Adam w

This is not Mexican. It's more tex-mex. Burrito is a joke? If I wanted this kind of food I would rather go to taco Bell. 20 bucks for two burritos. Never again.

Ed G

I really like Mexican food!!

Ben Ruiz

So I'm currently here and I notice the atmosphere is really nice and a variety of people come here which is awesome, however I am kinda feeling a little discriminated against. The reason being is that our waiter looked at us while ordering our food at the table in English and then says what you don't speak Spanish?! I'm like yeah but I continued to order in English and it's like he coped an attitude with us and then while my wife is ordering her food, mind you today is her birthday he like shrugs and stands there tapping his feet like he's in a hurry to leave our table soley because we didn't really speak much Spanish to him. Now, mind you there are white folks and black folks here whom are getting great service not speaking Spanish but I feel like discriminated against. In addition the food here is not fresh it's actually frozen I know the difference especially when you nuke the cheese on enchiladas and it's cool to the touch while the plate is super hot. #neveragain. Fyi to those who. Are non Spanish in origin this is not authentic Mexican food local guide or not you don't know what your talking about. Authentic go to La Azteca in Hammond and freshly cooked.

Ladi Mimi

Jeff Brown

Food and service were good.

pedro gutierrez

It's a decent place.

Jacquelyn Beene

Shrimp fajitas was excellent!

Amy Defalco

Food is okay. Don't get the queso fresco dip, it's canned cheese with gross flavor. Enchilada dinner was ok, not super. Food was salty in my opinion. Basic but ok. Service was good.

Leonard Wegrzyn

Okay it's okay

Lori Manthey

We love it cozy n very good food

Gene Dolan

Excellent Mexican food! Love their margaritas and their chips and salsa are tops.

2 of the 3 plates we ordered were not correct. One, the filling was wrong, and the tortillas were flour (ordered corn ). The other plate had sauce. we asked for no sauce..

Elizabeth Mansieh

Monica Cerda

This place is amazing ! The waiter TONY especially, he always does his best to make sure EVERYONE has a great time , his customer service is very personal! I would recommend to everyone to request him and to come eat at this restaurant the Food and Margaritas are very good !!

Tim Rose

Would have given 4.5 stars if I had the option. The ambiance was really nice and got me in the mood for a margarita or 3. I'm going to start with the bad because this is why I couldn't hit them with 5 stars. We ordered their big family appetizer and it had me worried about the rest of the meal. The chicken in the quesadilla was okay, a little plain, but not too bad. Their ground beef is just bad. Bad in texture, bad in taste. Our actual meals were unbelievable though. I ordered nachos with steak chicken and shrimp (texas nachos I believe) that were to die for and my mom ordered enchiladas in 5 different fillings (enchiladas santa maria). She even commented that the chicken was much better in the enchilada than the appetizer. Definitely worth the trip

Hazel Tighe

Y U M M love it will be back.

Jm Kacmar

It's a good place to eat.

Ralph Vaughn

Tacos are great. Food is excellent. Will come back

D 17

I have been here multiple times. Quality of food has never been different. I am vegeterian and they always make everythging i ask for off the menu as well. Great environment, food, and people. Highly recommend for family events or just dates.

Anthony Hernandez

The food was great, and the service was fast and friendly.

Jack Conrick

Consistently good food, and huge portions.

That Chick!

Food & drinks were delicious!

Leah J

Would give -5 if possible! The service was horrible! Our table was unattended too after rushed drink orders, and having to flag another waiter down just to order food after a 25 minute wait! After the food was dropped off the server not once returned to the table after we sat there for 45 minutes! We had to go to the register ourselves without even seeing the bill to pay! Magically he appeared, with no apology, no discount for his horrible service, but a smug look and he check! We stepped out and my friend returned in to inquire if she could have a box after leaving her plate, which was cleared off in 30 seconds smh! The manager was nice, and claimed he would get her a new tostado, but after waiting 10 minutes returned with the same cold fumbled over tostado and old gauc! Disgusting and I’m positive that’s a health code sanitation violation! Safe to say, we won’t be back along with about 15-20 of our friends who we had introduced to this resturant!

Jason Zaring

Pricey but great food. Worth the price.

Roy Strickland

Great food and service and the drink's was awesome

Jim Whitaker

Stopped here for some lunch , had the Texas nachos ! Food was hot and fresh ! Definitely an awesome spot !

tommy bowen

Could not have asked for a better experience. Table of 9 at 11am on a Sunday. No wait. Food was quick and everyone liked what they ordered. Juan was our waiter and did a great job!

junior amitoelau

The food and service was pretty good.. they're known for their margaritas and they are good

delia martin

It was a different experience in Mexican food for me but it was definitely delicious

Cristina Shanahan

Beautiful place, plants everywhere, music not too loud so you can have a conversation, very friendy and fast service. Now the food, we ordered taco dinner, chilaquiles and burrito. Everything was very good. Rice and beans were good too. Meat was very tender and tasty. I asked for the birthday song, sinve they had music, but they came and sang to me and gave me this delitious cheese cake, the best I ever tasted.

Crystal Groce

Love the rainbow margaritas. Different sizes, great flavors. The food is good as well. Prices are reasonable.


Food has gone downhill....I ordered flautas they make them with flour tortillas.....YUCK! Use corn tortillas like ever other Mexican place does. My friends burrito dinner was so small and hardly any rice and beans. Very disappointed in the food. Food used to be good not anymore. Service was ok. The only thing that is good now are the drinks. Don't think I will be back.

Susan Kowalski

Canned food can be tasted. For the price of our meal, I’d expect quality food. Service was promp.

Hope Crownover

javier hernandez

They have thier good and bad days! The wife loves it! I prefer Coculas, you get more for your $.

Wally Danczak

Great authentic food at great prices. I cant tell you what to order, because I have tried most of their menu over the past 5 or 6 years and have NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. I just wish we lived closer.

Jesus Arellano

Great food and even better service! Had my birthday dinner here with my family and we all loved it

Christine Strayer

The best fish tacos I've ever had! Other menu items I've tried have, I have never disappointed! I could list so many! You can't go wrong with any choice! Very authentic. Great service, and prices. I've never had a cocktail there, but have seen some of the biggest margaritas that look very refreshing and very very big!

Jazsong AK

This a party! Delicious bites and even better margaritas

Cynthia Guerrero

Terrible experience! I’ve been here before with my husband and have always had good service, tonight was awful. The waiter brought out two out of five dinners. We waited 10-15 minutes for them to bring out two more and another 5 minutes for the last one. Then didn’t bring out tortillas. The drinks didn’t get refilled until I asked to see a “manager”. We were so disappointed. Waited another half hour without anyone checking on us so I had to go to the front to ask for out check. Another 5 minutes pass and they bring it. 130.00 check I asked the manager for some kind is discount for the poor service he literally laughed and took $10.00 off. I told him we probably won’t be coming back and he said ok. What a joke! Awful customer service. Did not even get an apology for the horrible service. I’d give no stars if I could.

Martin Cook

Very friendly & welcoming servers . Food was excellent and served much faster than expected ! The Texas Nochos & appetizer sampler easily feeds 3 ! This is my 1st choice next time I'm in Indiana !!

michele stewart

Been here a few times. They offer many different Mexican dishes and the food is okay, not the best or worst. Of course they offer free chips and salsa when you dine in. The margaritas is why I always go back. They offer extremely large margaritas!

Ryan Zubrick

The staff is very friendly and the food is always fresh. My wife and I go every week and have yet to be disappointed.

Savvy dillon

I went there yesterday with my daughter. I got steak taco dinner and she got a steak and cheese burrito because they don't have tortas. I mean the food was just ok. It had like something off about it. I didn't eat the food and brought it home and my mom said the same thing. So very mediocre. The horchata was HORRIBLE. Very bland. Redeeming qualities were the restaurant was nice and the staff was verynice as well. That being said i would not go back.

Edward Ray

Met up with some family members to enjoy good food and drink in a nice setting. One of my top 5 restaurants in NW Indiana. One tip my wife sends along is to order top shelf liquor for your fave Mexican cocktail, worth the extra buck or 2. Enjoy!

Zachary Perlinski

Food is always good. Hospitable service. One of the best-decorated mexican restaurants in the region.

Nichole Henson

Good place to go with family we really enjoyed ourselves. The place was able to accommodate a big family of 12. The waiters were really nice and the food was really good and the drinks were really good.

Kevin Doe

The food was very good. The staff was very friendly, and the service was quick.

Heather Lynn Harris

Their chicken is unbelievable. I highly recommend the nachos. They're very generous in portions. Very attentive servers, and, easy to locate the bathrooms.

ken Mobley

Great food great service.
